Ahh, the smell of a freshly lit candle. What is it about those soothing scents that makes us just stop, pause and breathe for a bit? It’s like hitting a refresh button on your day! There’s nothing like taking a moment to yourself to recoup and one of the best ways to do so is with a beautiful crystal candle. Just like all candles, crystal candles are used for aromatherapy but with the added bonus of the natural healing energy of a crystal! Now, you might be wondering:
What is aromatherapy with crystal candles?
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment used to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit. There are many different methods of aromatherapy, but our favorite way is by burning crystal candles. Using essential oils and fragrance oils, the aroma of the candle stimulates the smell receptors in your nose, which then sends a message to your nervous system. The emotional center of your brain, the amygdala, receives this message and is directly impacted by creating a chemical reaction (emotional response) in your body.
Aromatherapy is known to relieve stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, soothe headaches and migraines, boost immunity, and more. By infusing a healing crystal inside each one of our candles, the healing benefits intensifies. Below we’ve listed the aromatherapy benefits for some of our crystal candles, as well as each crystal’s healing properties. Read the brief description of each one to decide which crystal candle is best for you!
Amethyst Crystal Candle
Our amethyst crystal candle is by far the crowd favorite. Not only is amethyst one of the most popular healing crystals for clarity and peacefulness, lavender oil is also one of the best oils used for aromatherapy. The therapeutic benefits of lavender include relief from stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, nausea, and more. Our amethyst crystal candle is infused with lavender and vanilla oils to create the perfect blend of soothing sweetness. Add in the energy of the amethyst crystal and you’ll be feeling centered and relaxed in no time.
Rose Quartz Crystal Candle
Everyone knows rose quartz is the stone of love, so it only makes sense our rose quartz crystal candle is our candle of love. Infused with rose and jasmine oils, the aroma of this crystal candle transports you to the center of a gorgeous botanical garden with glorious floral scents swirling through the air. Rose oil relieves stress and anxiety by relaxing your body and mind, while jasmine oil boosts your mood. Jasmine is also known to be an aphrodisiac, so the next time you’re feelin’ a little frisky, light up one of our rose quartz crystal candles (if you know what I’m sayin’ 😉). Or simply spread the love with the floral fragrance of a radiant bouquet of roses.
Citrine Crystal Candle
We like to say our citrine crystal candle is like sunshine in a jar. The refreshing scents of lemon and grapefruit oils invigorate your senses to boost your mood and recharge your day. Lemon oils cleanse toxins from the body, rejuvenate energy, relieve nausea, and boost immunity. Grapefruit oils balance your mood, reduce stress, and lower blood pressure. Pair that with the high vibrations and positive energy from the citrine crystal, and you’ll walk around with a smile on your face all day long!
Turquoise Howlite Crystal Candle
Our turquoise howlite crystal candle is the perfect encapsulation of a day at the beach. Light up this candle to relax and unwind whenever you need a break from all of the hustle and bustle. Infused with tea tree, sandalwood and honey shea oils, the therapeutic benefits of this candle come as a triple threat! Tea tree oil purifies the air, boosts immunity, reduces anxiety, relieves insomnia, and more. Sandalwood oil promotes mental clarity and calms the nervous system. Lastly, honey shea oil is used to add a gentle touch of sweetness to create an earthy sense of tranquility. On top of all of that, turquoise howlite is one of the most calming healing stones. So when you’re feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders and just need to take a step back, this candle has you covered.
Black Tourmaline Crystal Candle
Black tourmaline is the most beneficial protection stone to ward off negative energies. Infused with cinnamon, sandalwood and vanilla oils, our black tourmaline crystal candle has the enchanting aroma of a gorgeous fall day. Known to enhance your mood, relieve anxiety and depression, and promote better sleep, cinnamon is another popular aromatherapy oil. Burning this candle is like wrapping a cozy sweater around yourself on a brisk fall day; so warm and comforting!
